You lure me
"I Just Have To Hold You" by Jean Hornby
I saw your beauty
Amidst the others
You, so beautiful by far

Full of life but yet so still
Your colour a beauty
Your aroma so sweet

I just have to hold you

I look as you stretch towards the sky
And imagine it to continue
Deep within the soil

Fine trailing roots on their search
As you stretch in a tunneled maze for the nutrients below

Whilst you above breathe in the air
And grasp nourishment from the sun.

I feel honored to study you
I smile at your stillness
You do not move
But you are yet so alive

I just have to hold you

You lured me to do it
So one snap is all it takes
For you to now be mine
It is in my grasp that you belong.

I just have to hold you

But as I hold you between my fingers
You no longer seem as beautiful.
And as I stare at your stillness
You are no longer full of life

Suddenly a voice breaks the silence and loudly cries.

" You killed me "

I drop you and run .
